Howard Gerrard studied at the Wallasey School of Art and has been a freelance designer and illustrator for over 20 years.

"This is a very interesting book, which provides a great starter for anyone studying Marine Corp tank operations during the 1960s. From a modeller's point of view, the detailed descriptions and excellent artwork will prove very useful and will, no doubt, be a source of inspiration for many Vietnam dioramas." --Rowan Baylis, Armorama (November 2004)
